We can use presentations for upcoming meetings, please see a list of ideas if you're willing but lacking a topic.
We generally meet monthly for technical presentations (2nd Thursday of the month, 6 pm, RCTC), and monthly for socializing (varies). We no longer meet monthly for lunches, if you are interested in reviving this tradition please contact an officer.
